In the wake of Monday’s debate, the fur has truly started to fly between Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. And now, there’s another individual entering the fray — and it might just surprise people to see who it is.
Apparently, Hillary recently did an interview with R&B singer Mary J. Blige, during which she used Fox News host Megyn Kelly as a verbal weapon against Trump.
This didn’t go over well with Kelly. As a result, Kelly in turn issued a challenge to Clinton, daring her to come on her show for an interview — rather than just using her name to assault The Donald.TheBlaze reports, Kelly noted that Clinton recently did an interview with R&B singer Mary J. Blige and argued that Clinton should grant “The Kelly File” an interview rather just than using her name to criticize Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Kelly quickly started receiving support from the Twitterverse for the challenge:
Do it, HRC! Megyn Kelly interview! https://t.co/R0KclA4Y6n

After the first presidential debate Monday, Kelly interviewed Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon and asked him why Clinton has yet to appear on her show.
“Hillary Clinton went on record and called yours truly a ‘superb journalist’ when Trump was attacking me,” Kelly said. “Why won’t she come on ‘The Kelly File’?”
Fallon said he agreed with Clinton’s assessment of Kelly “one-thousand percent” and it is “only a matter of time” before Clinton will come on her show for an interview.
As awesome as it would be to see Hillary get grilled lightly on both sides by Kelly, it’ll never happen because the “Queen of Corruption” needs someone to interview her who won’t stray from her previously-rehearsed talking points.
If there’s one thing the latest debate proved, it’s that Hillary cannot go off script without falling to pieces; hence, she’ll never put herself in a position where she would need to respond to a question like a normal human being.
In fact, if Trump really does his homework and refuses to be baited by Clinton in the next debate, he stands a very solid chance of absolutely destroying her on live television.
That’s reality TV worth watching.
